About the property

HUGE - Family friendly 3BR/2BA With 3 Ways To Play! Lagoon, Beach & Pool!

Welcome to 'Hibiscus Hideaway' at Sea Oats - another great property from Hibiscus Cove Rentals! Be sure to check out our newest three bedroom unit (VRBO #704072) and our two bedroom unit at Sea Oats as well (VRBO# 489288).

Whether you like to boat, fish, relax on the beach, or lounge by the pool - Sea Oats is the place where you can have that old-fashioned family vacation you've always dreamed of!

What is the Hibiscus Cove experience? We want you to have a care-free vacation. We are constantly being asked, 'What should we pack?' And we always tell our guests to close their eyes and pretend they are taking a plane to Hawaii and pack accordingly. We genuinely supply everything else you will need. We provide a nice starter set of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher tabs, garbage bags, etc., so you may need to restock a few of those items while you are here. Basically, pack your clothes, pick up some groceries on your way in and RELAX!


Hibiscus Cove Rentals proudly offers a $100 discount on any stay of 5 days or longer for our guests who are actively serving or have served in the Military, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, Search & Rescue, etc. We are EXPANDING our service discount to include those working in the Medical profession (Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, etc) and Teachers!!! We appreciate what you do for us, for our country and our community! Just let us know how you served (or are currently serving) at the time of booking. We offer a $50 discount for stays less than 5 days. (We cannot combine discounts, but will cheerfully offer you the best deal if more than one discount applies!)



Sea Oats is located only 3 miles west of Highway 59 and West Beach Blvd (the Hangout). Our beaches are quiet and family friendly, in the most laid back area of Gulf Shores. Yet we are only moments away from the all the excitement Gulf Shores has to offer - including shopping, music, nightlife, amusement parks, restaurants and golf.

Property Features:

Sea Oats has everything your family needs for a relaxing beach vacation. Our complex is located on Little Lagoon and directly across from the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores. We provide your family with a beach wagon, chairs, umbrellas, even a cooler! The beach is just steps away using our dedicated boardwalk, complete with showers for rinsing off. Be sure to take advantage of our TWO Olympic sized swimming pools with plenty of deck chairs for a relaxing evening.

Sea Oats also offers a private boat launch and slips for guests, 2 fishing piers with fish cleaning stations, 2 gazebos, and a picnic area with grills. Bring your boat or watertoys!

We also offer assigned, covered parking and security for each rental unit.

Unit Features:

We offer a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath with over 1400 square feet. Our large balcony has a great view of the pool - perfect for keeping an eye on the kids! The balcony is just off the dining area and kitchen for the perfect view of the sunset.

The master bedroom has a King Size bed, flat screen HDTV and DVD player, large closet, dressing area with vanity, and private master bath. The second bedroom contains a Queen Size bed and the third bedroom has a Queen bed PLUS a twin bed. All three bedrooms have large flat screen TVs and DVD players. Basic cable and FREE WIFI is provided. Directly between the guest bedrooms, you will find the second full bath.

In the living room, the family can unwind by watching a DVD or cable on the flat panel HDTV. There's plenty of comfortable seating and games to keep the kids busy. We just added TWO NEW comfy Queen sized sofa sleepers (watch for photos soon!) - perfect if the kids want to watch TV and eat popcorn without disturbing the grownups! If you have guests using either sofa sleeper, they will enjoy their own private vanity with mirror and sink in the living area.


We offer a large, fully equipped kitchen designed to meet your needs - well stocked for up to ten guests. There’s a full size refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, stove and dishwasher. You'll also find a great assortment of small appliances and utensils to make cooking a breeze. Entertain friends or kick back with a cocktail and watch the sunset - you won't find an more relaxing vacation!

No need to lug beach towels and chairs! We provide everything a family of 8-10 would need for a day at the beach: beach towels, beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, even a cooler!

We also provide a full-size washer and dryer in the unit for your use.

Looking for adventure? Take a dolphin cruise, go deep sea-fishing or parasailing. Take your family to historic Fort Morgan and ride the ferry to Dauphin Island for a fun day out.

Fore! Did know there are ten signature golf courses in the local area? Calling all Shoppers - Famous Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is only a short drive and offers great selection at discount prices.

About Roy and Susan Forson

After living all over the country, we have finally made lower Alabama our home! We have lived in Maryland, Michigan, Wyoming, and Tennessee. We are avid golfers and love scuba so Gulf Shores is a great fit for us. We live nearby in a local community and are dedicated to helping you and your family have a great vacation!

Roy and Susan Forson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Roy and Susan Forson chose Gulf Shores

We spoke to many visitors to Gulf Shores and we kept hearing over and over that Sea Oats is the 'best kept secret in Gulf Shores' for family vacations! All the families we spoke to keep coming back and we certainly see why. The units are well-maintained and they have two amazing pools. The lagoon is perfect for fishing and the beach is just steps away - the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

As a mom, my favorite feature is the balcony which has a great view of the pool. I can keep an eye on the kids and enjoy a moment watching the sunset. We also have a downstairs storage unit so all the beach toys can stay out of the way until you need them - really keeps the sand away! Finally, we love how well stocked everything is. We enjoy using our condo, too, and it is great to be able to pack our clothes, shop for some groceries, and relax! We don't have to buy or bring a lot of extra items - and that is exactly the experience we want to provide to you! Going on vacation is not supposed to be a lot of work!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Gulf Shores in early November. We couldn’t have asked for a better pet friendly place to stay. The condo was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and more. We loved the beach but also spent time watching the sunset on the bay. We will definitely stay here again. Roy and Susan worked to make our stay as nice and comfortable as possible.

Condo was exactly what we had hoped for. Our family had a great time as we spent our first Thanksgiving away from home. Kitchen was spacious and well stocked. Beds were very comfortable and it was very clean. Absolutely will stay again!

Great condo with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this unit, but our 2nd time staying in one of the Forson’s units. They are amazing to work with and their units are immaculate and have just about everything you could want while you’re there. We are already checking our fall break dates for next year and will be booking with them again next October. I highly recommend staying in one of their units at Sea Oats.

As Good as it Gets!

  • 5 of 5

We loved that we were off the main strip so traffic was not a big issue yet we were minutes away if we wanted to jump back into the shops. The beach was easily accessed and the bay was also right there. We liked having the pool as an option. What really makes this place stand out is the owners. They are so easy to work with and they really care about you. That makes this vacation one of the best ever for us. We had a hurricane Nate to deal with and they refunded us one day which they did not have to do and I did not ask for that. We did get a hotel for one night to avoid the storm. We will be back!
